Sadio Mane has found himself a surprisingly expendable figure at Anfield in recent weeks, especially considering the pivotal impact he seemed to have on Liverpool’s results during his debut season with the Merseyside club.
Indeed, the speedy Senegalese found himself benched for not only a resounding win over Brighton last weekend but perhaps more significantly, a recent home clash with Chelsea – the importance of which suggests he’s less instrumental in Jurgen Klopp’s plans than he was this time last season.
After all, the Reds boss still has three phenomenal forwards to call upon in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, so we asked Liverpool fans earlier this week whether the 5 foot 9 attacker should start in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
But even if Klopp’s opinions are changing on the former Southampton man, those of the Liverpool fan base certainly aren’t. According to our poll, a staggering 97% think he should be starting against Everton this weekend.
